TAWNY OWL calling at dusk


A thaw is now taking place, with temperatures today creeping up to 3 and 4 degrees C. It also rained for much of the morning, washing some snow away, and also became rather foggy in some areas.

I spent today in East Sussex, where the striking feature was the huge numbers of winter thrushes all along the South Coast. REDWINGS were the most abundant (photographed above by Ashley Stow) where, for example, I recorded 100 in Seaside Park, Eastbourne, and at least 250 on Magdalen Road School Playing Fields in Bexhill-on-Sea. The cleared snow on the latter also supported 18 Fieldfare, a Mistle Thrush and 3 Lapwings.


At dusk, a female TAWNY OWL was calling from tall firs at Milk Hall at SP 977 000
